14. God did not create a meaningless world.

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

god, whom i refer to as creator or sovereign, did not create a meaningless world.

why is it the case that the creator did not create meaninglessness?

two things.

one, if the world is meaningless, then it makes the creator meaningless.

two, i am part of the world, and if the creator makes creation meaningless then i, as human being part of the world, am meaningless.

therefore, i can’t be meaningless because the creator cannot create meaninglessness.

yet, that which the creator did not directly create does not actually exist and therefore that non-direct creation is meaningless.

that means whatever was directly created by the creator was created to have meaning, which means i, as a person, have meaning.

that also means that the world i see (computer, car, building), the world i hear (songs, ideas, words), the world i observe (disease, hunger, war) has nothing to do with meaningful reality, which means that the world that I see, hear, or observe is of my own making (lesson 2).

in order for me to find peace is to begin to learn to see what creator created and not what i have (or humanity has) created. for instance:

the creator did not create the computer;
the creator did not create the car;
the creator did not create the building;

the creator did not create the music;
the creator did not create the ideas;
the creator did not create the words.

which means that:
the creator did not create death;
the creator did not create war;
the creator did not create politics;

the creator did not create religion;
the creator did not create division;
the creator did not create hatred.

therefore, the things that the creator did not create are a creation of my own mind (or of humanity’s mind).

what i create in my mind separates me from the creator.

that means that which separates me from the creator has no meaning because the creator creates a world full of meaning and purpose.

the creator did not create a meaningless world, therefore the creator did not create politics and religion that thrive on meaningless divisions, which means those things are from my mind (or from humanity’s mind) and thus are not real and do not have real meaning.
